This week we begin our study of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. First, we begin by looking at the time, place, and history surrounding the Bard when the plays were written. We will also review literary terms and drama terms. Below you will find the power point presentation that we reviewed in class as well as the notes worksheet I made for you. If you missed class, here is everything you need to get caught up!

Next, we will go a little more in depth into the language of Shakespeare and try to find some of the hidden treasures in the text by studying the way words were spoken. The videos we watched on OP and the worksheet on Sonnet 116 are below.
